I am looking for 28 people to join in the fun, but would entertain 56 participants if we are so lucky. There will be one week of signups starting today and closing on 12 October at midnight. To sign up, leave a comment below. If you are (or may possibly be) a no-reply commenter, include your email address in your comment. Myself, or my fellow Charm Fairy Irina, will be in touch with you after signups close to assign you a color. That email should arrive by 17 Oct.
When you get your color assignment email, you are to run off and look for TWO prints (1 yard each) that are predominately your assigned color, but in two very different shades of that color. One dark and the other light. We are looking for modern prints and not solids. Be sure that the print you are choosing is of a reasonable scale to be cut into charms. Fabrics must be 100% cotton of high quality - no cheap-o prints that will bleed everywhere, please.
When you choose your fabric, please upload a photo to the flickr group. To ensure no duplicates, be sure to check what others have uploaded before you buy your fabric.
Being a Fluffy Sheep Quilting sponsored swap, a 10% discount is offered on any fabrics purchased from the shop. I will send out a discount code in the email with your color assignment. If you buy from FSQ, I will also cut the charms for you AND you will not have to pay shipping. Oh, the happiness!
Cut and ship your fabrics so that they arrive in Galway by 22 November. If you have not cut charms before, use this tutorial as a guide. A new rotary blade and pressing ahead of time helps a whole bunch. Include in your parcel a pre-addressed return envelope. No return envelope, no returned charms.
You will receive in your returned parcel 112 charms, 56 prints in duplicate. When shipping comes around, I will ask you to send (via paypal) to me the cost of your shipping so that I do not loose out on paypal fees. I will not be invoicing you, but requesting you send the payment directly to me by email.
Let's get swapping, friends!
